"Pacific Standard Time"

Hundred of artists stand to gain exposure through the upcoming museum-fest known as Pacific Standard Time. In a story running this Sunday as part of our fall preview section, curators involved in the project identify over a dozen artists they feel are especially ripe for reappraisal.

Some are largely unknown. Ever heard of Robert Kinmont? Chauncey Hare? Didn't think so. Others--like Suzanne Lacy--are prominent L.A. artists who have not, curators argue, received the widespread recognition that they deserve.

The photo above is from Robert Kinmont of Sonoma and is included in the exhibition, "State of Mind: New California Art Circa 1970" at the Orange County Museum of Art.
